Karim Benzema’s agent denies rumours that he has held talks about a potential transfer of the player to Arsenal.

The French striker is one of Arsene Wenger’s targets this Summer and it was believed last week that his representative had visited London to begin negotiations.

However the agent, Karim¬†Djaziri, has today revealed that his trip to the England’s capital was for different reasons.

“I went to London for personal business, not to discuss any transfer,” he said.

“Karim Benzema has a contract with Real Madrid so let’s wait and see.

“He loves Madrid and wants to play every time as he loves playing football.”

But with the Gunners once again failing to win a trophy, Wenger has already suggested that he is looking to spend a lot of money and Benzema is a player he has admired for a while.

It is also known that Real Madrid are not too keen on holding on to the striker and would accept a reasonable offer for him.
